ANY AMOUNT CAN JUSTIFY AN ARREST
If you are charged with possession of drugs, you could be facing hefty
Possession of small amounts of any drug other than marijuana or another
person's prescription pills is usually considered a
felony. Being charged with possession of controlled substances such as unreasonable
amounts of prescription pills, marijuana, cocaine, oxycodone, LSD, Ecstasy
or any other controlled substance could hold serious implications against
you. Depending on the amount that is found in your possession, you could
face anywhere from a 2 year jail sentence, to charges may land you in
jail for enhanced first-degree felonies and up to 99 years in prison.
A drug conviction can also have ramifications outside the courtroom, such
as affecting your ability to receive federal financial aid for college
and maintain a driver's license.
YOUR OPTIONS WHEN ACCUSED OF POSSESSION
It is possible that for a first-time drug offense you may be a candidate
for mandatory probation rather than jail time. Depending on the county
that you were charged in, there may be diversion programs or drug court
programs. If you have been arrested and accused of drug possession and
this is your first, second or third offense, understanding the different
actions that could or have been taken against you is important. Most legal
battles involving drug cases involve the legality of a traffic stop leading
to the discovery of the drugs. It is important you contact an
skilled criminal defense attorney to help find the best possible action for you to take. Please fill out

THE COMMUNITY HATES DRUG DEALERS
Where the criminal justice system considers most drug users to be weak
indviduals that have succumbed to addiction, the courts and the community
view drug dealers very differently. In some areas in and around San Antonio,
a drug dealer can be sentenced up to 99 years in prison for a first offense.
